“Trail leads to the highest point in the South Park system, incredible views of the Northern Sierras.”— Eduardo Guerrero
Once you catch your breath after the difficult climb, you can soak in the views from the ridge. The trail follows the ridgeline, so there are a few exposed sections. The descent back towards Spanish Traverse Trail has quite a few switchbacks, but is a lot of fun!
